What will you be getting up to?

A good building is all about the people who design and build it, who own and operate it, but most of all, who use it. A good building is simple to create, operate, adapt and ultimately remove; it’s cost-effective over its lifecycle; it respects its environment; and it is appropriately functional.

Our Buildings and Infrastructure Team based in our Altrincham office are looking to expand their BIM teams, where typical duties include:

  • Producing "preliminary", "construction" and "as built" drawings to company standards using BIM software packages such as Revit, Civil3D, Microstation and AECOsim.
  • Collaborating with other team members to produce accurate 3D models, and occasionally computer visualisations.
  • Producing structural and hydraulic analysis outputs from these models that will be used by other disciplines to aid the production of the best workable design solutions for the client.
  • Producing piping and instrumentation diagrams.
  • Working with the state of the art shared 360 degree 3D visualisation tool – The Igloo – to assist teams with immersive technical reviews.
  • The opportunity to see the drawings and models you produce be constructed with an intense design and build construction programme across Wales.
